Full size products is what hooked me in the beginning.... Ok my daughter (she just turned 18) and each have Boxycharm subscriptions and for the last few years we have this cute tradition. We open ours together, each month no matter what. I love that sometimes our boxes are the same, and sometimes they are so different. When they are different we try to figure out why. It is silly but often hilarious when she gets anti aging cream (I am 49) and I do not... Another thing we do is add up the retail value per box to see how much our individual boxes are worth. It is fun to compare (and share products). I am not much for the glittery eye shadows yet she uses them or has friends that will. Last month we each received a really nice mini curling wand and I love it! First time for me to use a wand, and it takes awhile to get used to it...but it works great and is so cute too! Great for all the traveling I do. Most of the time and I will say easily 75%-85% of the time I love everything in my box and so does she (and what is in each other's boxes) I do like that on your profile you can go in and prioritize what items you want and what items you like to use. The beauty quiz is the best part of the Boxycharm because it is what actually personalizes your box for you. Well worth the $25 we spend each month for the box. Most of the time the value is well over $100 or more for each box and I have been introduced to some amazing products and brands that I never would have tried on my own. Once a month, Boxycharm will email you to let you know that your choice time is available to choose between one or two of their items. I love love love this! Also, around same time they open the add ons option and I have bought items I have tried the month before and loved at a reduced price which is a great way to keep using the products while deciding how long you want to continue using them.

I only like maybe one or two items a month so I'm wondering if it's even worth it. They have you fill out a survey asking about what you'd like to receive and colors of makeup you wear, then they send whatever they want. I'm a neutral and I've receive some very wild punk color eyeshadow pallets (which I specifically said I didn't care to receive) and some bold color lip color. The only thing I kind of like so far is some skin products and eyeliner. If this continues I'll probably end up canceling.

Wow, I'm NW20 so hardly anything in this Fenty box works for me. The Moroccan Palette and the Diamond Lip Bomb are the main items I will be able to use. It is frustrating as BoxyCharm had us do a color Profile for products. I love Fenty products, but I am not feeling happy about this one.
